Sources: County exec, mayor join Dems for Christie

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Two elected officials from North Jersey are set to become the latest Democrats to defect to Republican Gov. Chris Christie.

People familiar with the plan say state Sen. Brian Stack will endorse Christie Monday afternoon in Union City, and Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo will endorse the governor Tuesday in West Orange. Stack is also mayor of Union City.

The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak before the official announcements.

Christie would not talk about the endorsements Monday.

The governor and possible 2016 presidential contender is looking to win by a landslide against state Sen. Barbara Buono, in what he hopes to be a display of bipartisan appeal.

Christie has already been been endorsed by some less well-known Democrats.
